Georgia football-Tennessee Week 6 TV network, game time announced
The Georgia football team will have an off week this coming Saturday after beating Notre Dame 23-17. The Bulldogs’ next game is against Tennessee, who also will not play this weekend.
A game time has been announced for the week 6 matchup on Oct. 5, as the Bulldogs and Volunteers will play at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN. Georgia is unbeaten and ranked No. 3 in the country, while Tennessee limps in with a 1-3 record. The Volunteers lone win on the season came against Chattanooga.

When these two teams met last season, the Bulldogs came away with a 38-12 win. When these two teams met in Neyland Stadium back in 2017, Georgia came away with a 41-0 victory.
The bye week comes at a very good time for Georgia, given that the team is fairly banged up after a physical clash with Notre Dame. Starting cornerback Tyson Campbell did not dress for the game, and fellow starter Eric Stokes also left with a knee injury but did return in the fourth quarter.
On the offensive side of the ball, Solomon Kindley left the game with a left leg injury. Georgia’s starting right tackle Isaiah Wilson did return to action though after he missed the previous two games.
This game will be a matchup between two former Alabama defensive coordinators, as Jeremy Pruitt is the head coach for Tennessee. The two worked together at Alabama from 2007-12. Pruitt also served as the defensive coordinator from 2014-15.
There are also a number of Georgia players who have close ties to the Tennessee program. Tight end Eli Wolf played at Tennessee before grad transferring to Georgia. Offensive lineman Cade Mays was a one-time Tennessee commit whose dad played for Tennessee and grew up in Knoxville.
Both Mays and Georgia outside linebacker Azeez Ojulari both have brothers that are currently committed members of Tennessee’s 2020 recruiting class.
